Description

Description

Description: The Blue-faced Parrotfinch (Erythrura trichroa or Amblynura trichroa) is not only a beautiful bird but active, social and generally peaceable. These rainforest natives prefer an open aviary over a flight cage, tending to act nervous when housed in smaller enclosures. If kept in cages, they should have at least 3 feet of horizontal flying space. Blue-faced parrotfinches love a good bath, so make sure that you supply clean fresh water daily to see these adoarble aviary gems in their peak condition. 

Geography:  Australia

Song / Call: Click to hear the Blue-faced Parrotfinch 

Size / Weight: 4.75" 

Sexing: Monomorphic (visually difficult to sex). However, DNA testing is available to ensure desired gender. 

DNA Testing 

If there is not a gender option listed for this bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic', which means we’re unable to determine gender without DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $99 per bird to be tested. If you want us to do our best without DNA testing, just make a note in the comment section of your order letting us know your preference. Please note that if no DNA testing is ordered, we are unable to guarantee a preferred gender but will do our best. See our FAQs for more info.

Temperament: Active, social; generally peaceable, but sometimes pester other breeding birds and tend to act nervous when housed in smaller enclosures. These birds need open spaces for flying as well as densely planted areas for climbing and nesting, and are best suited to live in a large aviary as opposed to smaller enclosures. Blue-faced Parrotfinches do well in a mixed aviary with other passive species, but should be limited to one pair per enclosure.

Breeding: Breeding should be restricted to the warmer months. When given the right housing and diet, Blue-faced parrotfinches tend to breed prolifically, and will often need have the sexes separated in the off-season to prevent over breeding. Limit one pair of Blue-faced parrotfinches per breeding enclosure, as these birds do not breed as well in colony fashion. A proper breeding diet (half-ripe seeds, sprouted seed, peas, corn, Egg Food, etc.) should be offered as soon as pairs are introduced.

Lifespan: 7-8 years

Diet: Goldfinch Seed Mix, Australian Blend GoldenfeastDried Egg FoodMineral Grit, Greens and some fruits
